Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This user has a 0% accept rate, but many of his/her questions have accepted answers. Is this a bug?

Did he recently just accept a bunch of answers? – Troggy Sep 1 '09 at 18:37
According to the alt-text, only 19 of his 25 questions are eligible too... – Sampson Sep 1 '09 at 18:37
I agree, I looked the user has 25 questions asked and has accepted answers on at least 11. This despite the fact that the acceptance rate says the user has "accepted 0 of 19 eligible" – Nathan Koop Sep 1 '09 at 18:38

It appears as though this user has gone on an "accept" binge in just the last hour - I'd guess it's a caching issue. (the % accepted query is a batch thing, AFAIK)

This user has mended his/her ways. Obviously the "accept rate" feature is doing it's job! – user27414 Sep 1 '09 at 18:41

My guess would be the user just started accepting answers. The acceptance percentage is heavily cached, and for both the questions of theirs I just checked, it was today when the answer was accepted, including for the oldest question they have with an accepted answer. The other question I checked can be found here.

OK - I think Troggy is right. I looked at the user's recent activity, and he/she only received the "scholar" badge 16 minutes ago.
